Our Mission

The mission of Mail Services is to centralize mail services and minimize duplication of resources; to efficiently receive, process, dispatch and deliver U.S. Postal Service and intercampus mail throughout the campus and UC Davis Medical Center.

What We Do

Mail Services processes all UCD and UCD Health Services (UCDHS) mail received from the US Postal Service as well as all pieces routed through Campus Mail.

We pick up mail from your department at the same time your deliveries are made. Mail may also be dropped at one of our mail processing locations. Although mail is picked up at the same time each day, you may request a special messenger for urgent mail that cannot wait for regular delivery. When possible, your mail will be picked up and delivered immediately. Requests submitted by 3pm can be accommodated the same day.

Mail tubs are provided for each department for outgoing mail. These tubs should be used for mail delivery only, as they are in limited supply, and should not be used for storage, filing or stockpiled for future use. Additional mail tubs, trays or bags can be requested for your department to prepare and contain mailings. Call the Delivery Supervisor for availability and delivery.

Mail Services provides additional services, including Bulk Mail and Ship-Out programs. Mail Services will also seal certain types of envelopes for you at no additional charge. To qualify for the sealing service, there must be 25 or more letter-size envelopes with the flaps interlaced, neatly rubber banded with the addresses facing in the same direction. Envelopes must not be overstuffed.
